I was part of the World of Warcraft roundtable session this morning. It went really well, and the paper figures were a hit.
I caught up with Adam Hyland who used to be an engineer and managing engineer on a NAVY boat, and it was really cool hearing about how much parallel he saw with WoW raiding and the way a NAVY boat works. We talked a bit about Hutchins and it was great to hear that the description in Cognition in the Wild is pretty close to Adam’s experiences.
Here’s the info for my session:
Much like I would with a poster session, I lament the fact that we didn’t get to go around and talk to each other. It seems ironic since we would’ve benefited the most. (I just had a quick chat with Lee and Shawna who feel the same way.)
Here’s a photo of my papercraft. :)
